CAPTURE OF A HORSE-THIEF.
H EftcnpraFram Ills Pnnnen-JIakn
main ay 10 weaver anm in vnpinrm
by Our COnnty Jailor. Brought to
Town, antl CojfMl Interview! by
Our Loral IIIh Confession In Full.
On last Eriday night, Dr. David R.
Glenn, living near Curds ville, in Daviess
county, had two horses stolen. H. M.
Austin, of McLean county, a eon of Dr.
Glenn, and another man whose name
we did not learn, started in pursuit of the
thief, and reached this town Sunday
night. Monday rooming they 'started up
the Hardinsburg road, and when about
three miles from town, near Milton Tay
lor's, they came up with the thief and
horses. They rushed upon him, and be
can firing at him, but without effect. He
returned the fire.and shot the borse young
Glenn was riding through the withers,
and then abandoned the stolen horses and
took to bis heels through the woods,losing
bis hat in his flight The pursuers cap
tured the horses and took them to Mil
ton Taylor's, where they left them, and
returned to follow the thief. It is strange
that three men would leave the rascal in
sight, and go off a considerable distance
to pnt away the captured horses, when
one could have done it as well, and left
the other two id pursue the fugitive, and
can be accounted for only upon the ground
that Henry A'ustin can run better on the
trail of a horse-thief four or five days old
than he can by sight.
Our efficient county jailor, E. L Wise
hearing of theaffair, jumped on his horse
and "lit out" for Beaver Dam, where he
beard of a man who had bought a new
hat and left town on the Cromwell road
with a son of E. O. Porter, who had
brought his father down to the station
and was returning home with an extra !
horse, 'winch he allowed the stran
ger to ride. Lum put out at lull speed
and soon overtook the fancier in horse
flesh, and brought him to town Monday
night and locked him in jail.
TUE PEISOSKR INTERVIEWED.
The local of this sheet visited the jail
yesterday morning, and asked permission
to interview the prisoner, which Mr.
Wise very kindly consented to, and the
prisoner made the following statement:
My name is IL F. Strattou. J was born
and raised in Alabama, and am nqw
twenty-fire years old, and bare lived In
Kentucky since 1864, until about a year
ago, when I went to Illinois. A week ago
this morning, ! left Illinois to come to
Kentucky to see my relatives, and when
I left, in the sight of God 1 was an honest!
man. I had formerly worked for Dr.
Glenn five years, and came to his
neighborhood, and there I fell in with
some old acquaintances. This was on
Thursday last. Their names are Jim
Jewell, Ben Jewell, George Jewell and
Jim Lampkins. They said they belonged
to a clan of borse-tliieves, and made plen
ty of money, and if I would join they
would soon have me with plenty of money;
that they would steal horses and get me to
run them pff and sell them, and we would
divide the money; and if I got caught
they would come and break jail and take
me out. I was hard run, and gave way,
and joined them; but my conscience has
hurt me ever since. I have wished a thou
sand times, I had not gone into it, and if
I can only get out this time I solemnly
row I never will engage in it again. They
arranged to steal two horses and meet me
Friday night at St Joe's Catholic church.
I went according 16 agreement, and they
met me, and delivered me the two horses,
which I was to take (o Clarksvillc, Tenn.,
andr sell, and Eet on the cars and return
and divide the mopey with them.
I bad not gone far before I discovered
that the horses were JDr. Glenn's, for I
knew them, and had worked them. I
felt worse than ever when I made this
discovery. They told ine to go round up
through Ohio county, and cross Green
river about Borah's ferry, I went by Ow
ensboro, Lewisport, Haweeville, Knotts-
ville, and then to Howe's mill, and on o
near Hartford, -when I came across my
pursuers, and the rest you know.
THE EIAMIN1NO TRIAL.
Yesterday morning Mr. H. H. Glenn,
A. S. Algood, and H. M. Austin, the orig
inal pursuers of Stratton, came to town,
and the prisoner was.brought before Judge
Gregory for examination, and held in bail
of four hundreddollars for his appearance
at circuit court, which failing to give, he
was lodged in jail again.
The proof showed him to be a man of
ordinary good character till last June,
when he bad some trouble with the
Glenns, and had to leave there. In his
confession to Mr. Wise, after being arres
ted, he stated that he tried to kill Mr.
Algood and took two fair shots at him
Monday. It seems to us that a man
guilty of stealing two horses, bridle, sad
dle and halter, -carrying concealed dead
ly weapons, and shooting with intent to
kill, ought to be held to a little stronger
bail than four hundred dollars. If be be'
longs, as be says, to a band of thieves, and
they are pledged to help him, they can se
cure the bail and liberate him, and he can
make the four hundred before court We
mean no reflection on the good intent
of the county judge and attorney, but we
were astonished to bear the county attor
torney only ask for five hundred dollars
bail, and the judge put it at four hundred.
We.think it ought to have been at least a
W. T. King, Deputy U. S. Internal
Revenue Collector for this district, brought
George Rains from McLean county one
day last week, where he hod been arrested
for selling liquor without license. Mr.
King started with him to Louisville on
Wednesday. King is regular thunder on
these moonshiners and no-liccnse fellows.
James Dinwiddie, a young man who
was attending the Hartford Seminary,
and who boarded at the Crow House.sud-
denly and unaccountably disappeared on
Tuesday morning the 16th inst, and has
not been seen or heard of since. He was
generally looked upon, we believe, to use a
Scotch phrase.as having "a bee in his
bonnet" He had peculiarities that were
noticeable, but, so far as we know, was
free from vicious habits. Prof. Haynes
wrote to his father, who lives in the vi
cinity of Milwood, Grayson county, noti
fying him of his son's disappearance.
Young Dinwiddie left all his clothing,
and his books packed on the table ready
for school, in his room at the hotel.
What is rather singular about the matter
is, that he 'was not seen on any of the
roads leading from town, either on the
day of his disappearance, or at any time
A Unman Brnte Iesert Ills Wile
David Riley, a man about thirty years
of age, who lived in this county near the
McLean county line, on Sunday week
carried bis wife and five little children to
her father's, Mr. Joseph Bennett, and
there left them, pretending that he want
ed to go off to another neighborhood to
buy hogs. That was the last they saw
of him. The wretch sold off everything
he could turn into money, and then made
tracks for parts unknown. A man who
could thus deliberately desert bis family,
rob them of all means of support, and
leave them to battle with poverty and
destitution, their only hope of sustenance
resting upon the cold charity of the world,
a creature whom it would be gross
flattery to call a devil.
Daniel Hines, an American citizen of
African "scent' was indicted at the last
term of our circuit court for drawing a
loaded gun on our fellow citizen, Jesse
Potter. Daniel had made his boast that
he would not be arrested, and turning
his cabin 'into a fortress, be supplied him
6elf with guns, pistols, and the like,
and awaited the advance of the legal force.,
Deputy sheriff G. W. Bunger, went out
one day last week, and walked into the
fortified cabin with a good sized "persua-

and successful future.

The condition of our streets would be a
disgrace to a Digger Indian village. The
mud is universal and almost bottomless.
It abounds everywhere. In rainy weath
er there is scarcely a thoroughfare in the
town that is passable. What few side
walks we have are in miserable order,
and ought to be repaired. There is no rea
son under heaven why the present state
of things should exist Hartford is
one of the oldest towns in this section of
Ihe State. For more than sixty years its
domestic affairs have been administered
by a board of trustees. During all that
time taxes have been levied with prompt
exactitude on the property of our citizens
by the board of trustees, and collected
with commendable industry by the town
marshals. There is but one lawful use
to which the money so collected can be
put and that is the improvement of the
public highways o the town. We are
assured that, in the last twelve or four
teen years, about all the work the town
board has ordered to be done, and saw
accomplished, was the cutting down of a
portion of an elevation near the bridge.
The work otherwise done on the streets
during the year would not exceed twenty
dollars in cost, and makes them nuisan
ces instead of bettering them. The taxes
paid by the citizens and property-holders
of Hartford, since the town has been
incorporated, run up to many thousands
of dollars, yet the streets are not drained,
and there never has. been a .foot of side
walk built either at the expense of the
town purse or by the order of the trus
tees. All the walks constructed have
been by property-holders, Now, the peo
ple don't want to. pay their money out for
nothing yet that is what they have been
doing all these years. We do not charge
anybody with stealing this money. It
may be that it has all been judiciously
and legitimately expended pro tiono pvbli
Yet there are a good many people in
town, tax-payers at that, who are at a
loss to understand this. They want some
thing tangible to show for their, money
And they are right Let the trustees
publish an exhibit of the town's financial
affairs. It is due to the people, twho want
to know what .becomes of the money., It
is due to the trustees themselves, if they
wpuld not have suspicion of wrong-doing
attach to themselves. Let us have the
statement by all means.
For the very best family groceries, of
every kind, at the lowest prices, go to

We call the attention of onr readers, to

first-class jewelry.such as watches, clocks,

While at Louisville, recently, we were
in their house, and were present when
the letter-carrier brought them an order
from tbe golden shores of California for
a lot of thelr-famoue spectacles.
C. P. Barnes began the jewelry business
jn tbe spring of 1863, on tvcapital of $300,
with his brother J. B. Barnes, as clerk or
salesman. In 1866. J. B. Barnes was
admitted' as a partner, and the present
style of the firm was adopted. They are
both sober, disoreet, honorable young
men, and their success is attributable to
the fact that they are content to Bell for a
small profit and never take advantage of
the ignorance of a customer, but sell to
all alike, at a reasonable price; and they
never, under any circumstances, know
ingly misrepresent their goods, and, be
sides this, they do a very libeial amount
of judicious advertising.

A LETTER FROM ROCKPORT. Xkver closed to the poor and I the needy, or
Dear Herald: I have for a long time
meditated a letter to you, but have hith
erto been hindered by my characteristic
and excessive modesty. If this .effusion
is consigned to the waste basket, all my
literary ambition will be "squenched.'
Rockport is situated on Green River at
the crossing of the L. P. & S. W. R R.
It has about sixty families. It has fire
dry goods houses, two hotels, a black
smith shop, a stave factory, a mill, and
the biggest Police Judge iu the State.
I have done tbe injustice of forgetfulnesa
to the gunsmith shop.
There will also be in operation, by sum
mer, a foundry here.
When the sfave factory opens up for
the spring work, it will give constant em
ployment to about eighteen or twenty
hands. I mean in tbe factory proper. 1
understand that the proprietor, Mr. W. E
Chess,-contemplates building a finishing
shop as soon as the weather opens. The
factory when in operation presents a busy
scene. JSvery tellow seem to ttnnK the
success of tbe whole concern, depends up
on his individuul exertions. What with
the thumping and bumping of the two
buckers, whirr and buzz of the equalizers,
and the loud ring of the heading . saw, it
is an exciting spectacle.
The equalizers are two saws running
on the same axle to cut off the ends of the
staves thuB making them all of exactly
tbe same length. The stave is then run
through the bucker, which "shaves"
them very-nicely, making one side con
cave the other convex. They are then
packed on a car and "run'' into the steam
house, where they are boiled for two or
three days. They are then run to tbe
dry house, here they are subjected for a
a day or two to a constant draught of hot
air, when they are ready to ship by R. R.
or by barges. They turn out ahout 12,000
per day, (more, particulars another time.)
Rockport is bound to be a prosperous
and important point. Its facilities for
shipping will make it so if nothing else.
Let its citizens awake, then, to their true
interests, and cultivate a spirit of im
provement and enterprise. Among their
most pressing needs now are a good and
commodious bouse of worship, and a. good
warehouse. A large and beautiful lot has
been donated for a church, and it should
be built The only meeting house here
is the school house. It is of course,
though a nice and good house, hardly fit
for either being too large for the one and
too small for the other. P. R.
